Here’s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, The Scriptures and Prayer by Arthur W. Pink, published by Chapel Library. You can get your copy, both physical and digital for free by following this link.
“…freedom and delight in prayer are stimulated by the consciousness that God is, through Jesus Christ, willing and ready to dispense grace and mercy to suppliant sinners.”
Here’s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, The Scriptures and Good Works by Arthur W. Pink, published by Chapel Library. You can get your copy, both physical and digital for free by following this link.
“Nothing brings more honour to Christ than those who bear His name living constantly (by his enablement) in a Christ-like way and spirit.“
Buying books at Lazada (an e-commerce platform here in the Philippines) wasn’t on my scheduled to do but I bought books at greatly discounted prices from OMF Literature. One is for a ministry and the other is for my personal use.
The church fathers are gifts to the church. They’re the one who (some of them) went under the teaching of the original disciples before the apostolic era ceased. They’re the ones who are able to hold Scriptures in their original language.They were the original benefactors of canonicity of Scriptures and creeds. They were there when the church was in its infancy. The church fathers were there going head to head with philosophers and presenting Christianity. This is but a few of what they have done and been through. And what a privilege that is to serve God in those times.
Though we can say lots of great things about them, the church fathers are, like us, humans and capable of errors. They have a fair share of blunders like in our time when it comes to teaching the Bible. Fallible as they are, they were the forefront on the development of hermeneutics starting with patristic biblical interpretation. So if we want to know how these church fathers interpret the Bible, we should not ask how the church fathers interpret the Bible but first and foremost, the question should be: how do the church fathers read their Bibles?
Here’s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, The Scriptures and Love by Arthur W. Pink, published by Chapel Library. You can get your copy, both physical and digital for free by following this link.
“The genuineness and strength of my love to God are not to be measured by my words, nor by the lustiness with which I sing His praises, but by my obedience to His Word. The same principle holds good in my relations with my brethren.”
A time travelling plot is a staple in children’s books. Like what I reviewed last January, there is always room for this kind of story. Stories like these embrace the unknown that give such thrill to our little ones.
In the case of Christian children’s books, time travelling is not the end of itself. The story must lead to the gospel. Speaking the gospel in the story shouldn’t be just an afterthought. It must be the center. We must always show the essentiality of the gospel or else we might lessen its importance to our children. I’m happy that this new book by Bible teacher, Sinclair Ferguson brings the gospel to the center. How? By going back to the beginning.
It’s the middle of the year (sort of) and it’s time for my favorite albums and EP’s of 2022. This is just a partial list and I will update it by the end of the year. I’ll be doing this every middle of the year because I just can’t wait to share what I’m enjoying and I hope you’ll like it too. I know that you love music and I think you’ll looking for some good recommendations. That where this post come in. Hope this will help you listen to right the kind of stuff.
Here’s s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, With Him by Ken G. Smith published by 10 Publishing. You can get your copy, both physical and digital by following this link.
“Every member is to be built up to fulfill his or her function in the body, the church. And the focus of the pastor’s work is to help each person find his or her place of service within the community of believers.”
Ad fontes might be a call by the Reformation to go back to the Scriptures to find affirmation of what doctrines we should live by. As our culture goes farther and farther from the Judeo-Christian influence, we need to guard and defend it. I think ad fontes should and with much gusto that we apply this also in apolgetics. Cultural Contextualization of Apologetics authored by Matt Lee, helps us get into this matter by going back to the Scriptures and zooming in with the Apostle Paul’s apologetic approach.
Here’s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, Raising Kids in a Screen-Saturated World by Eliza Huie published by 10 Publishing. You can get your copy, both physical and digital by following this link.
“The biggest enemy parents have in raising kids in a screen-saturated world is the same enemy who continues to seek to destroy the work of God in your and your children’s lives. Don’t focus so much on fighting technology. Rather, fight against the ways Satan sneaks in to deceive and destroy.“
